Mountain States Health Alliance Selects BESLER Consulting’s Revenue Recovery Services

Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) July 22, 2013

BESLER Consulting, a leading provider of comprehensive revenue recovery services to healthcare organizations, is pleased to announce that Mountain States Health Alliance, based in Johnson City, Tennessee, has selected the company to assist in the identification of Transfer DRG underpayments.

Under Medicare reimbursement regulations, when certain patients are discharged to post acute care, the discharging hospital is paid at a reduced rate. In some cases, this reduced payment is not justified by the actual post-discharge care. These underpayments are not reflective of coding or billing errors on the part of the provider, but more commonly result from a change in the planned course of treatment subsequent to discharge.

BESLER utilizes proprietary software to efficiently work through the identification and follow-up tasks required to validate the accuracy of post-acute care transfer billing and to ensure compliance. BESLER also offers the BVerified? suite of web-based solutions, which allows providers to bring the work of identifying, prioritizing and recovering Medicare underpayments in-house.

After undergoing a rigorous review, BESLER’s Transfer DRG Revenue Recovery Service was recently awarded the “Peer Reviewed by HFMA®” designation by the Healthcare Financial Management Association. *

“Our Transfer DRG reviews give our provider clients the assurance that they’re receiving all of the revenue they’ve earned,” said Jonathan Besler, BESLER’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our proprietary technology and focus on compliance are a great way to uncover any underpayments not identified by an internal review or another vendor. We’re very pleased to be working with Mountain States Health Alliance on this issue.”
